§62-12-4. Probation of offenders convicted in courts other than
courts of record.
Whenever any person is found guilty of, or pleads guilty to,
a crime in a court which is not a court of record, he may, at any
time thereafter, file with the court of record to which an appeal
would lie, or with the judge thereof in vacation, his petition in
writing, together with a transcript of the docket of the court in
which he was convicted, requesting that he be placed on probation.
Upon the filing of such petition and transcript, said court of
record or the judge thereof, shall have power to suspend the
execution of the sentence of the lower court and to release the
petitioner on probation upon such conditions as to said court or
judge may seem fitting.
